13 New FSC®-certified products from September


Providing label converters with a growing choice of Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified products is a priority for Avery Dennison. This September sees a further 13 materials added to the FSC portfolio, bringing the overall total to 135 – and further additions are already in development.  Progress remains strong across the whole of Avery Dennison, and 49 different facilities are now FSC Chain of Custody (CoC) certified.

The FSC-certified range is now the most extensive ever, with a very wide variety of material types including thermal facestocks, wine labelling laminates, removable labels and labels with wash-off adhesive. The range also includes filmic materials that meet FSC certification criteria by using an FSC-certified liner.

Other Avery Dennison products designed to improve sustainability include a post-consumer waste (PCW) portfolio and all of the following:
